UPDATED: JAN 27, 2011 THIS RED COPPER BEER WITH TONS OF HEAD AND SWEET CARAMEL AROMA IS DEFINITELY NOT FOR EVERY ONE, BUT I PERSONALY ENJOY IT. IT HAS A NICE BALANCE OF RICH SWEET TOASTED CARAMEL MALT FLAVORS LACED WELL WITH LICORICE ROOT AND A HINT OF CHERRIES. NOT NORMALY MY FAVORITE FLAVORS YET REALLY PUT TOGETHER NICELY THE STRONG FLAVORS ARE ROBUST YET NOT OVER POWERING, THE ONLY DOWN SIDE I SEE IS THAT THIS IS A SPRING SEASONAL BEER, I UNDERSTAND THAT THE ORIGIN OF BOCK BEERS WAS WHEN MONKS WERE FASTING DURING THE SPRING THEY WOULD DRINK BOCKS, HOWEVER I THINK THIS WOULD BE A GREAT COLD WINTER BEER.NEVER THE LESS STILL ANOTHER HIT BY TROEGS!

Poured a copper with minimal head. Taste was fairly simple and soapy. A little bit of malt sweetness helped save a beer that would have been otherwise underwhelming.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2009 Smells like alcohol and malt. Tastes very malty, just enough hops for a nice finish. Above average for a doublebock. For the price (8 bucks for a sixer), it is a great deal.

I really dig this beer. It’s rich and sweet without being cloying or overly heavy. The alcohol is present just enough to compliment the malt. Very happy with this one

Deep red pour med tan head. Smells of very lightly of yeast and fruit. Tastes thick and solid of fruit jam notes and bready. Coats the tongue. I can’t decide if I love it or hate it.

Not a lot of aroma coming from this beer. Dark mahogany color with a super thick, large brown head -- delicious. Excellent mouthfeel, super creamy, fabulous texture with almost no carbonation. Taste is a malty, toasted coffee with a prune undernote. Very good doppelbock, super enjoyable, but the rating is hurt by a lack of aroma on the pour.

Bottle. Pours a nice cola brown color with a small khaki head that disappears quickly. Nice aroma of malts, moca and alcohol. Taste is pretty good. Nice blend of roasted malt, dark fruit, spice, dark breads and bitter hops on the finish. Sweet, but not overpowering. I’m glad i bought a sixer of this. Very drinkable.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

Caramel colored with a quickly dissipating head. Bold, malty flavor with a clean finish with a modest hit of coiffee flavor. NIce fall offering.

a decent brew but perhaps lacking a little in the flavor department. nice hoppiness but not overly complex.
